Describe the most embarrassing incident of your life.

I don’t really know…I don’t usually like to dwell on my most embarrassing moments. However, there is this one thing that I’ve done before that was pretty embarrassing.

Probably getting nominated for a Liebster Award only a month after creating my blog. That felt pretty good!

How long does it usually take you to finish a blog post?

Well, it really depends. A normal review can take from 20 minutes to 2 days. While these award posts and tags take a couple days. One day I write all questions and answers, then the next I add any pictures, gifs, and links.

I’m not sure….I don’t think anything hugely successful has happened, just little wins that are encouraging.

IF you haven’t got any, what would be the achievement you’d want to receive?

I’d want to Lindsay A. Franklin to read my reviews about her books. I’d also like to be viewed by other authors.

What is your favourite thing about being a blogger?

I love talking about books (obviously) and having the joy of achievement with each successful post.

What are your top blogging tips? 

Don’t start extravagant. Keep it simple, post only weekly until you have got a steady pace and the commitment to blog more.

Always try and have half-way decent grammar.

Writing about what you feel is important and interesting.

What is the most amazing thing you have ever done (besides starting your blog?) 

I don’t know what it means by amazing. I don’t really find the things I do amazing….Okay, I can rap in Bs though. (Ya know, every letter at the beginning of each word is replaced with B.)…I’d say that is pretty amazing. 😉 I should be on AGT. Haha!

My reviews mostly consist of YA and middle-grade books, although you can also find a few non-fictional adult books. I started my blog to recommend good (or bad books) to all kinds of people. With this ever-changing world it can be hard to find quality, clean, and entertaining literature for not only adults but children too.

    1. Thank you! No problem. Yeah, I do think I’m not well-versed in the “popular” books, but I’ve read some REALLY good books that should be popular! A series I DEFINITELY recommend is The Weaver Trilogy by Lindsay A. Franklin. I’ve written reviews for each of the books in the series, if you’re interested ONLY READ THE FIRST ONE CAUSE THE OTHER CONTAIN SPOILERS!!! Thanks for reading! xoxo
